It should just be a matter of unzipping the cloth bag,and turning the cardboard backing on the paper bag slightly to one side,and pulling off.The cardboard backing on the new bag has notches that align with the fill tube to reduce slipping off when using.

I'm having aproblem with my kirby g5 vacume i'vereplaced the gaskets and i can still smell dust when i use it


Did you try vacuuming out the inside of the cloth bag? Or washing it? Many times the dirt makes its way out of the paper and back into the room through that cloth bag.

I need to remove the outer bag from my Kirby upright. The inner bag was not attached and there is mung everywhere.


In order to remove the outer jacket from your Kirby do the following.
Detach the top bag clip from the handle support. There is a plastic piece, just below the outer jacket, called the mini emptor. Turn it to the right to remove the entire bag assembly. Removing the outer jacket is dificult and even harder to put back on so this is what I would do.
Unzip the outer jacket as you were going to change the bag. Remove the paper bag. You will then see a long black tube, that has a 90 degree elbow at the top. That elbow is attached to the inside of the bag with a snap type strap. Remove the strap, then you will be able to move the tube, while you clean out the inside of the bag. When finished put everything back where it was.

Kirby g2000 not picking up dirt


It is most likely the belt. You cannot reverse the suction. First check to see if the bag is expanding when running. If the bag is blowing up then it is the belt if not it is clogged just take the bag off from the vacuum and remove the head you will see the obstruction.

I just notice when I went to change bag in my Kirby G4 that the whose inside was split open, which made all the dust fill up in the bag. How do I get a replacement part for this and what is that part...


You do not need a whole bag. The bag fill tube is replaceable. can be temp fixed with duct tape and new one installed at home. vacuum inside with another vac and you will be set to replace

Kirby G4 Vacuum "BOOT"?


Greetings from GoVacuum,

The bottom part of the bag, which you referred to as a "Boot" is actually called a Kirby G4 Mini Em-Tor with Fill Tube Assembly. Kirby Part # 199493S. The part is only available to purchase with the fill tube assembly, this is the part that the disposable paper bag connects to inside the cloth outer bag.

Kirby has redesigned this fill tube, as the original design sometimes would cause the inner fill tube to crack. The Mini Em-Tor Fill Tube Assembly, part 199493S comes already assembled with the "boot" at the bottom, and the vacuum bag collar (the part the bag actually attaches to) at the top of it. You will need to remove the cloth outer bag from your old part, and put it onto the new "Boot". The cloth bag connects the "boot" with a special zip tie, which is Kirby Vacuum Bag Clamp. Kirby Part # 196599S. Where it is possible to remove the bag clamp without breaking it, I will warn you that this is no easy task. Spare yourself the aggravation of having to try and remove the clamp, and just cut the bag clamp with a knife or scissors.

You will also have to remove the top of the bag collar at the top of the cloth bag by releasing the fill tube from the inside of the cloth bag.

All of the parts are located on our website, www.govacuum.com. If you have any questions about the repair, you can get me on a live help, chat service located in the top right corner of our website. I'd be happy to walk you through this.

Thanks,

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The question is that is it the inside paper bag or the outside cloth bag? The paper bag simply has a cardboard collar and will just push and twist on to the black fill tube inside the cloth bag, the outer cloth bad is a little bit more difficult, it unhooks @ the top of the vacuum and it has a elastic band around the bottom, but on the inside cloth bag there is a ny tie that you have to cut off and remove in order to remove and change the clothe bag and then you need to get another ny tie that is of equal length to re-install the cloth bag, and the black tube sometimes is wired on with a bailing wire of which you can get @ a hardware store or your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

How to use my Kirby carpet cleaner?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
This is kind of a general question and I will try to explain the best I can. Most Kirby’s have a vacuum head and sometimes a shampoo head, the vacuum head is removable on most Kirby’s and the vac head comes off the front for a brushroll and belt change. When you vacuum and you go to adjust the vacuum head, raise the height adjustment all the way u to the top with your foot, then listen to the tone change, @ first you will hear air pulling thru and the brush has not hit the carpet as of yet, that is the sound the you are listening for, once the brushroll hits the carpet – there is a definite tone change and that is when you have it adjusted correctly, try to vacuum with it set that way, if it is picking up well – you’re OK, if not adjust if down one more click. Also remember to do a belt change every 4 to 6 months for good cleaning, change the bag more often because it will pup better with a new belt and bag, or if you don’t have a paper bag, take and scrape the inside of the cloth bag with the scraper provided in the small zipper section. Please refer to the owner’s manual or trouble shooting guide or to your local vacuum cleaner dealer or in the yellow pages, also you can use the Kirby factory or website listed below:
